Dave Lively

Welcome to Lively Tours and Talks

You have been asked to schedule a presentation for your group or you need a local guide for your motor coach tour of Rocky Mountain National Park?


You have come to the right place!

I partner with you to offer your group historical programs at your location or I will be your Step-On tour guide. You and your group will be entertained while discovering the ordinary people from the past who lived extraordinary lives. I'm easy to reach through the contact tab. Let's work together to meet your schedule.

Sincerely, Dave
